Overview

The Coupé series, designed by Joe Colombo in 1967 for Oluce, was initially conceived as a variation of the designer's Spider family, of which it has kept its base and stem. The simple, ingenious mechanism that connects the stem to the head makes it possible to direct the beam in several directions, by moving the dome up, down and sideways. In 1968, Coupé won the ”International Design Award” of the American Institute of Interior Designers in Chicago. It is part of the permanent collection at both the MoMA in New York and the ”Neue Sammlung” Museum in Munich. Over the years, many models of Coupé have been created (ranging between the historic table lamp to the floor and wall lamps), becoming one of the most renowned and appreciated Oluce collections. The floor lamp is available in two versions, with either a semi-cylindrical or a semi-spherical dome.

Oluce is the oldest Italian design company in the lighting sector still in operation today. Oluce lighting’s design aesthetic is crisp, linear, and decorative. A subtle, intellectual beauty that over the years has led the company to produce some of the more recognizable and admired iconic lighting in the world. Its lamps appear in the most important permanent design collections worldwide.
